The 80′s were unkind to a lot of people, both real and fictional. But the harsh realities of the “me’ decade weren’t just felt by live-action people. This short film by Steve Cutts shows that our favorite 80′s and 90′s cartoon characters were put through the ringer, and they’re working far worse for the wear.

Should have spent more time at the gym and the therapist’s office and a little less time at Studio 54 (or wherever the hell people were going in the 80′s.)

How many familiar faces can you spot in this video? I’ll help you out in the beginning: Mario. Smurfs. Roger Rabbit.

Do you want to live in a world where Jessica Rabbit is not the sexiest girl on the block? Me neither. But that’s what may have been, had an early (1983) effort by Disney called Roger Rabbit, found success and supplanted its successor, the 1988 Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

The video content is pretty unremarkable, except for all the hallmarks that remind us exactly how long ago 1983 was. It was a LONG time ago. You can tell because everything looks like shit, and a host is walking around with a full-on, elementary school-style tape recorder around his neck.

But back to the matter at hand: This failed attempt featured Paul “Pee-Wee” Reubens as the voice of the rabbit himself, and a less-than-sultry Jessica Rabbit. Let’s take a moment to appreciate how everything turned out.

Zemeckis Talks ‘Roger Rabbit’ Sequel http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/zemeckis-talks-roger-rabbit-sequel/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/zemeckis-talks-roger-rabbit-sequel/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 While talking to Robert Zemeckis about his upcoming film A Christmas Carol, MTV slipped in a question about a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? sequel, and it appears one is in the works. Sure, one's been in the works for two decades now, but now one is really in the works, and with the original writers. Check out what Zemeckis had to say below.
